Once your student enrolls at Samford, they will attend Bulldog Days in the summer prior to their first fall semester. Bulldog Days is Samford’s orientation program for new students and parents.

That's right; we want parents to attend orientation to find out what to expect for the next four years. In fact, we have designed an entire two-day schedule just for you.

You will have an opportunity to learn all about academics, campus life, the parents association and much more. Plus, you will be able to meet many other new members of the Samford family who are going through this college transition just like you.

For more information about Bulldog Days, visit our orientation website. We will see you on campus soon!
